The Suffolk based husband and wife entrepreneurs - Crispin and Lucinda Clay – have redesigned their scrumptious Munchy Seeds snacks to appeal to the growing number of people who like both tasty and healthy snacks.

The recipes were originally created by Lucinda’s New Zealand grandmother who wanted to keep her children away from the sweetie jar.

Company founder Crispin Clay said, “We want to encourage ‘nutritious nibbling’ and ‘mindful munching’ amongst children and adults alike.

The entire Munchy Seeds range is rich in Omega 6 and 9, high in iron, zinc and vitamin E, is low GI and free from artificial flavours, colours and preservatives. It is cholesterol, dairy and gluten free and suitable for coeliacs, vegans and vegetarians.

There are seven tasty roasted seed snacks in the range: Original Mix, Pumpkin Mix, Naked Seed Mix, Cajun Mix, Omega Mix, Chilli Mix and Vanilla Pumpkin. Pack sizes include novel 30g sachets (45p), 200g tubs (£2.99) and 500g tubs (£5.99). Look out for Munchy Seeds in Waitrose, Tesco* and fine food outlets.
